Is Punk'd gonna be uncensored?

There are so many bleeps during this show that it does get a little annoying after a while. and many times, you aren't sure what anyone is saying.

Probably the same version you saw on TV.

The best feature this set could have would be the episodes that got banned from MTV. Supposedly there were pranks done in Las Vegas -- I think one involved Tara Reid -- that MTV was not allowed to air. The information says they have things not shown on the show, but I don't know if these banned episodes are amongst them. Maybe MTV will work out the problems and air them at some point, because they obviously won't have new ones anymore.

actually

Hollywood hunk Ashton Kutcher will carry on pranking celebrities, after only pretending to axe hit show Punk'd.

The actor pulled the plug on the MTV show last month, after 'victims' began catching on to his crazy antics.

But sources now claim the announcement was a spoof and the show will return.

An insider tells website Page Six, "Ashton couldn't get any pranks done because people were catching on. So he announced that the show was over and that way he can still punk people."

However, a spokesperson for MTV says, "Ashton said he was pulling the plug, so as far as we know, the show is over."

So does this mean we get to hear Mandy Moore use naughty words? Cool!

And will Dax's dong make an appearance in the Jessica Alba punk? (Frankly, I could live without seeing that, but it would be funnier if it was.)

They could mean language in the commentary track. Mtv DVDs have been known to slap an uncensored label on things, but do a half assed job on uncensoring them.

yay
from review
Audio: The Dolby Digital 2.0 audio (192Kbps) is almost entirely uncensored. Every once in a great while a word or phrase will be bleeped out or made silent, but for the most part, every conceivable four-letter word and innumerable variations thereof are freely tossed around. More sensitive viewers may want to stick with tamer fare. The music used throughout sounds decently full, but similar to the video, the setups don't always lend themselves to pristine audio fidelity. The participants can generally be understood, despite the lack of crystal clarity. Didn't Punk'd air closed captioned? The DVD doesn't have any subtitles or captions, at least. "
It does get annoying hearing all of the bleeps during the course of an episode.

No blurring?

So if the language is (mostly) uncensored, does that mean we will or will not be getting visual uncensorship? I refer not only to Dax's aforementioned "dong" from the J. Alba Punking, but more importantly, the ineffective coverage of Britney Spears' dress during her reverse Punking of Ashton.

Those who saw this episode on MTV may recall the frequent blurring of her chestal region, as apparently she had "pop-out" issues.

I mean, I'm probably not gonna buy this set (Kutcher rubs me the wrong way... sorry, Kelso), but that degree of uncensorship may make the difference for some fellas (and ladies?) on the fence.

BOMM,

CS

...which is still blurred out...

Dax (IIRC) says in the commentary that supposedly you could see some areola, but he said he couldn't find any on the tapes he had. I don't recall either poppin' or blurring.

sorry, I just went to your review mainly to see if the audio was for the most part uncensored. Is it just mainly certain words that are cut, or did it seem completly random.

No real consistency. Frankie Muniz was cussing up a storm, but they bleeped out just one phrase of his. No idea what he was saying or why that was deemed unacceptable. Ryan Pinkston was also bleeped out once that I recall. Some of the language seemed like it was muted...at least, I got that impression from something Jason Goldberg muttered in the Britney Spears bit. Think there might have been others, but I didn't keep a running list. The vast, vast majority of the dialogue is uncensored, though.
